Dublin Bus have announced that from Sunday 20 January various routes in Dublin, including the 17, will be operated by Go-Ahead Ireland. This is in line with government policy on breaking the monopoly of Dublin Bus as the sole operator of bus services in Dublin. The 17 is the only service in our area which is transferring.
Fares will remain unchanged, and all leap cards and travel passes will continue to be valid. Some route amendments and frequency improvements will be introduced shortly, no further details are available at present.
